David Ortiz in the the center field bleachers first pitch from Beckett Teixeira grounds it foul into the photographer's well beyond the Red Sox dugout. So appropriate that Ortiz hit that home run with mobile on here tonight I guess -- had some tough words of wisdom for David before the game He said. That high outside pitch to put a run on top of that -- well that wasn't high and outside and He put it over that wall in dead center field. It was a bomb. 01 pitch low and inside wanna while the Red Sox chairman Tom Warner term. What -- night this has been so far scoreboard looks good so as soon as it.

Beckett pitch. Nearly hit him get away from very attack Teixeira goes to second base. It was almost a moment's hesitation. As though Varitek wasn't sure to know had been hit or not inside pitch just missed his back foot. That's the exact same pitch that hit Teixeira on the back foot just prior to that so Teixeira down at second base now with nobody out and canal -- -- 11 count. Are rivals have been so instrumental to by the Yankee players we ask him to do Promos -- that they didn't have to be told that Jimmy Fund is they. Are all very well aware of that and I think you really enjoy the opportunity to be part of. 11 pitch Beckett looks back to second swing and a miss by canal He falls behind 12. I said I can't say anything bad about the Yankees when I hear them saying nice things about the Jimmy Fund all day I can't say anything bad about. Tomlinson this few minutes.

And a one year He made it memory of Ken Coleman yes right at the -- past the -- news. Very very generous and was very well aware of with the Jimmy Fund was doing. One ball two strikes to counter Robinson -- to -- at second base nobody out. Top of the sixth inning Sox in front four to one Beckett pitched a line drive over the leaping Marco Scutaro -- -- left center field. Teixeira will score easily canal on his way to second base He will get there with a slide pop up. But -- applies the late tag to know what day an RBI double to left center field wall scoring Teixeira from second. The lead is cut now it's 42 Red Sox in front.
